Hey there,
yesterday I was still working with it (latest RM 5.3 with all updates), 32bit version under Windows 8.1 x64, i7-4770k, 16gb Ram, and today I simply couldn't start RM anymore.
No matter how often I clicked on the icon on my desktop, it didn't start.
I searched the forums and it seems that this happened in earlier RM 5.x versions before already but there was no real solution mentioned.
I uninstalled RM 5.3, deleted the whole rapid-i folder in C:\program files (x86)\rapid-i, then reinstalled it freshly and restarted the computer.
But still... it doesn't start anymore.
What could I possibly do?

Java version is:
C:\Users\myuser>java -version
java version "1.7.0_55"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_55-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 24.55-b03, mixed mode, sharing)
And here some more information about windows:

Please help me ASAP.
Thanks a lot!

Edit: Tried to start as administrator. Doesnt work either. The strange thing is that the same happens to a friend of mine. Yesterday he had to click like 3 times on the icon on his desktop until it did finally start. And also today he doesnt get it running. He is also running 32bit version under Win8.1 x64. For us both, there's not even a process "rapidminer.exe" in the process manager... Very strange!

EDIT2: Wow, I just look into the eventlog of windows, nothing in there. Okay. Then I just really double clicked RM on my desktop again and it started. This sounds very weird and somehow strange to me. Anybody any clue?

    you can start it via RapidMiner/scripts/RapidMinerGUI.bat and see what is happening in the shell. The .exe unfortunately cannot produce any meaningful error logs.

    Hi Marco,

    thanks very much for this tip. That sounds like a good point to start with to see what's actually happening behind the scenes :-)
    It just worked alright now anyway. But I'll keep it in mind, in case it wont start again and post the error messages here then, or try to figure it out myself.

    Thanks a lot again
